Clinical MR Neuroimaging, second edition, provides radiologists, neuroscientists and researchers with a clear understanding of each physiological MR methodology and their applications to the major neurological diseases. Section 1 describes the physical principles underlying each technique and their associated artefacts and pitfalls. Subsequent sections review the application of MRI in a range of clinical disorders: cerebrovascular disease, neoplasia, infection/inflammation/demyelination disorders, seizures, psychiatric/neurodegenerative conditions, and trauma. This new edition includes all recent advances and applications, with greatly increased coverage of permeability imaging, susceptibility imaging, iron imaging, MR spectroscopy and fMRI. All illustrations are completely new, taking advantage of the latest scan capabilities to give images of the highest possible quality. In addition, over 35 new case studies have been included. Editors and contributors are the leading neuroimaging experts worldwide; their unique combination of technical knowledge and clinical expertise makes Clinical MR Neuroimaging the leading text on the subject.
